1000% No even Steve Jobs in his book says there are limits.
would you buy a 7” watch ?

Steve Jobs regarded computer as the auto mobiles there are Motorcycles, there are Garbage trucks, there are sedans, SUVs many automobiles of different sizes with different features and capabilities.

Same with computers, there are small ones and larger ones, desktops even Servers that are closet sized or bigger.
Just Like a “tablet” is handheld with one hand at 14” and 15” that defining feature is absent heck at 12.9” it’s not one hand able.
Steve Jobs said stylus is a joke but tbh the biggest selling point for the note series of phone is it’s stylus. The reason why the note would be the only Android phone I consider buying if I go back...

Yes immediately. 15’’ would be a dream.

And just because 13’’ is too big for Some of you don’t speak for others.

A stylus is a joke and Ive use a stylus since the Treo700 days. The Apple Pencil is not a Stylus. It’s a very impressive device. IMO Steve would be very happy with what the Apple pencil offers.

Definitely would purchase one. I use a Surface Studio for drawing and some other specific applications and though it’s not at all portable, that huge screen is wonderful

Nope. Even the 12.9" is just too big to use/type on without a physical keyboard attached - which I'm not interested in all at doing.

A decade of iPad and I still cant decide what *my* preferred size is. I always thought I wanted the biggest iPad you can buy for multitasking and stuff but lately Ive resorted to simply using two old iPads at once (using iCloud and Continuity to keep things in sync) and its been awkward but great. I still want new hardware but it does feel good to put old hardware to work.:D

But, they would only get that big if there was the demand and I don't believe there is enough demand for such a large-screen tablet that would make it viable from a sales point of view.

If it had macOS, the demand would be there I suspect.

No.

Anything larger, and also heavier, to the iPP 11" would fundamentally change the way I would need to handle it. I often use my tablet in bed, laying on my side holding it in the one hand. Bigger, even if it was at the same weight, would make that significantly more difficult. I also take it out with me most times and there's a limit to how big that can be without it being unwieldy. The 11" is already beyond that due to its width.

The only way I'd accept something exceeding the current sizes is if it replaced my MacBook Pro… and that ain't happening any time soon. And there's a limit to how big I'd accept that to be too.

I have other things that are bigger to watch things on… I simply don't need nor want everything to be super-sized.

If I ripped off my MacBook Pro's 15.4" screen and it magically turned into an iPad, I would be happy with that iPad. I would ditch the Mac for that.

Lol, I do that with PDF markup. I actually did buy an Air 3 for Logitech Crayon support so I can use the same Crayon on two iPads seamlessly. No pairing required. :p

We have been through this before when the 12.9 was released. The debate would be much more pleasant if people add "for me" or similar.

I would like a 20-24 inch desktop Pad that I can connect via sidecar to a Mac if I need or use standalone. Ideally, the iPad would big enough to have a standing A4 on half of the screen in landscape mode. If it is a viable or popular need, I have no clue. However an Apple designed (cheaper than XDR) display that double as a iPad (or vice versa) might increase the customer base for such a device.

A 15’’ iPad Pro could replace a Cintiq for many artists and in general be a great design & illustration device. As well as for consuming media, movies and gaming of course.

Amazed the lack of vision by so many posters here. They cannot imagine a larger ipad as a digital
control surface, music notation playback device or art canvas. All they can think of is an ipad that
sits in the lap and fits in a backpack. I am sure I apple had not made the 12.9" in 2016, they would
say it was 'too big' and unneeded

I don't care about any of the use cases you mentioned. I would like a 14" for some of *my* use cases but if I had to limit myself to just one iPad, I'd opt for 10.5/11".

The question is "Would *you* buy a 14 or 15 inch iPad Pro?". Obviously, people are going to respond based on their preferences and use case. Given the question, the *for me* is implicit in the replies. I don't see how it constitutes a lack of vision when it's simply something an individual has no personal interest in.

Same here, if I had to choose one it would be 10.5/11... But I have virtually all sizes (7.9, 9.7. 10.5 and 12.9) and would buy a 14-15 inch in a heartbeat... I use the 12.9 mainly in portrait mode, contrary to my other ipads and I have use cases for a larger one, to the point that I have been considering a surface book 15, but cannot justify spending $2000 for use in portrait (especially if I need to have the heavy keyboard attached with its gap to have some decent battery life...).
Will it happen? I highly doubt it unfortunately....
